She Arrives

Avin Maxine Schuler
7:11 am
3 lbs 15 oz
17 1/2 inches


Mom and baby are doing well. Avin is in the NICU and will spend her time there but she is doing wonderful. She is breathing on her own and everything looks great. We are hoping this continues and I will try feeding her within the next hour. Please pray that she latches on or will take a bottle is this is one thing that they need her to do before she can be let go from the hospital. We are not sure how long her stay will be.

I will post later tonight about the entire story of her birth. It was amazing and perfect.

SHE IS JUST PERFECT!


These pictures don't show how little she is. We will find something to compare her to so everyone can see just how small she is.

Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts, it means the world to my family!

She is beautiful!!! I had a 33 weeker who was 3.5 pounds. This brings back memories of how tiny he was!
Hope she catches on with eating quickly!!!
